I'm not entirely sure what's for dinner - "they" are cooking in honor of my b-day.

I'm a bit nervous... I've seen 25 lbs of ribs on the counter, wild rice, leeks, some Boursin, 5 lbs of key limes and a bag of pretzels. Somehow I suspect that this isn't a quite family dinner.

I'm not sure?? Also not really sure how ribs fits into a vegetarian b-day dinner..
Like I said - I'm a bit nervous but am hoping there's some tonic to go with those limes :).

Omg, Kay. We had the same wine at our little supper club! Good stuff, happy everything!

Pac, did you bread those? They look fantastic! Fries look to die for.

Kayelle, best of all, it was " all you can eat" walleye night! ( who knew? Used to be just prime rib) Along with the full-fat salad bar, best evah beef barley soup, and Kendal Jackson, we had one spectacular meal! We never do all you can eat anythings!

Gotta love the Midwest!
